    Disability Inclusiveness

    In the podcast episode “Disability Inclusiveness” of Season 5 of URMIA Matters, Julie Groves, hosts a discussion on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, both in the association and on campus. The guests are Jeff Chasen and Courtney Davis Curtis, a past president of URMIA. Curtis explains how the addition of DEIB objective to the URMIA strategic plan started and Chasen discusses strategies, such as leveraging internal resources, fostering community partnerships, and framing inclusion as a best business practice. The conversation highlights the value of making inclusivity a core part of institutional practices, with a focus on welcoming and inviting engagement rather than merely fulfilling requests. The episode underscores the human aspects of DEIB efforts, viewing them not as checkbox exercises but as opportunities to make a positive difference in individuals' lives and perceptions of institutions.
